This is a very large nicely carved reclining Buddha.It was not very crowded at all when we went. We found it worth a visit and for most people it would not be a long stop. There are, however, some other images, ruins and parkland at the far rear of the ruins that are nice. One could either walk there or take whatever their transportation is and walk around and enjoy the area for a bit. The main event, however, is the reclining Buddha. I am a lover of the teachings of the Buddha, so that could make it more meaningful for me than for some.

Impressive in its own right, but nothing in comparison to the reclining Buddha in Bangkok or indeed the ruins in the rest of the Ayutthaya area. If you are in the area or on a tour, it’s a pleasant 15 minute stop - including a most impressive small shop run by a man who creates intricate designs from buffalo skin (sounds odd - but looks beautiful).

This giant statue of the reclining Buddha lies in Ayutthaya surrounded by ruins . It's not very well maintained ,needs some upkeep compared to other sites nearby . There is an artist in the nearby shopping complex who sells very beautiful paintings made by hand on cow skin for 1000 THB. Worth looking at

The place is not crowded, which in and of itself makes it worth the stop. It's peaceful and a nice place to picnic. Some good shopping, but the people selling flowers near the Buddha can be quite aggressive in their sales techniques.

We learned that there is a Buddha for each day of the week, two for Wednesdays! The reclining Buddha is a Tuesday favourite. Very impressive. We spent some extra time lighting some incense, putting water lilies out for good luck, or placing a piece of gold foil on the replica in front. All part of the experience.
We were fortunate as there were many Thai ladies there wearing their traditional dress. Got some great photos to say the least. Make sure to get one looking from toes to head!
